    A strange little hostel in a strange little city. The views are amazing, the staff are very friendly, personal bathrooms in the rooms, comfortable beds. Reception closes around 8, but check-ins after that are still allowed, they leave a nice little envelope with your name at the front desk. Nothing special, and a little hard to find (its up the stairs next to the grand hotel), but for the location and the small city it is perfect, and the staff are beyond helpful. A perfect stay nonetheless.

    So friendly so clean ! After visiting two of the Cinque Terre towns, Porto Venere is my favorite, and I found this was a very sweet home base. Very quiet here in December, tonight I have the whole place to myself.

    Porto Venere is such a peaceful and nice place, the hostel is well located but you have you take in consideration that to reach Cinque Terre you have to arrive first to La Spezia which is 45 min bus from the hostel

    The hostel was nicely located on a hill overlooking the bay. The staff were helpful but only available by day. The hostel was clean and there was a large common room/ kitchen but no sink (!). Breakfast not provided. The hostel was also quiet- I didn't even need to use earplugs which I normally do to sleep.

    Place was nice. Be warned that if the weather is bad then the ferry to the terre will not be running and you will have to take a bus and a train to get there.

    Beautiful view off cliff! Far from cinque terre, you need to bus to La Spezia, then walk 10 minutes to Centrale station, then take the regional train. Super clean room and nice front desk staff, but not on duty often. Very relaxing stay with comfortable beds.

    There was no real kitchen, only a microwave, hot water kettle, and a fridge with no food labels. The rooms themselves were clean but there wasn't a charging port at each bed, only a power strip plugged into one wall for charging your phone. The staff was not very welcoming and the hostel is located at the top of several flights of stairs with no elevator or handicap accessibility.
